About us

This is how we roll!

We started out as a one-man business for bulk transportation and have since grown into a leading family-run transport firm specialised in the transportation of chilled and frozen goods. Even today, the head of our family, Ludwig Dejonghe, still gets behind the wheel of his truck every day with immense enthusiasm. The second generation of the family has since joined the business. Our fleet and network of subcontractors have grown over time to meet the demands of our trusted customers.
